Barney Frank Wants Newly Elected Rep. Djou's Birth Certificate, Bonus: Djou House Floor Speech


by the Left Coast Rebel

Personally, I would rather not consider anything even remotely 'tongue in cheek' coming from Barney Frank. Regardless, (The Hill):

Tongue firmly in cheek, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) on Tuesday afternoon called on reporters to demand to see the birth certificate of new Rep. Charles Djou (R-Hawaii).

As Djou (pictured here) was being sworn into office, Frank walked the hallway of the Speaker's Lobby off the House floor calling on the media to "do your job" and review Djou's papers.

It was a small bit of payback for the enormous amount of attention some conservatives (and the media) paid to the is-the-president-really-from-America controversy.

But, unlike the commander-in-chief, as Frank knows, being born outside the U.S. does not preclude you from becoming a member of Congress.
What an idiot. Also, due to a busy schedule here, the Left Coast Rebel forgo the chance to write of newly elected Rep. Charles Djou in Hawaii. This morning I caught Djou on Fox and Friends and he brilliantly stuck to basic fiscal responsibility, Tea Party principles.

I like the guy! And although he is simply filling out the term of 10-term congressman Neil Abercrombie (Djou will hold the seat until January, 2011) and he narrowly won in a 3 way race, his win was historic in it's importance.

He simply has a pleasant way about him and represents just what is needed. Here's Rep. Charles Djou's first House floor speech from yesterday:

Hawaii is a putrified liberal cesspool, welfare state. If they can send a guy like this to Congress and from the Obamanation's own home turf as well, then anything is possible.

Via Memeorandum.


  1. So now Twinkle Toes Bawney is a "Birther"?
    Gotta love Barney Frank...

  2. Frank jumped the shark with me when he staunchly opposed additional regulations for Fannie and Freddie. That, to me, was truly unconscionable

  3. Linked with gratitude:


  4. Twinkle toes aside, Barney is just an idiot that deserves to be sent packing. However in the great Socialist Commomwealth of Mass. it ain't likely to happen anytime soon.
